WALKS, dressing up and paintings were just three of the ways that people in the Daventry area contributed to Red Nose Day.

On Saturday Aaron Hall, from Long Buckby, set out with his carer Ruth Beeston on a three-leged walk through his village.

Aaron is 24 and has Wolf-Hirschhorn syndrome, meaning he has physical and learning difficulties and associated health issues including heart defects and epilepsy. He has limited communication and mobility and requires 24 hour support.

Aaron’s target was to raise £100 and he estimated the walk would take 30 minutes, however he excelled himself completing it in 10 minutes and raising £300 for Comic Relief.

Ruth said: “Aaron never ceases to amaze me, he rises to every challenge and really is inspirational. He is wonderful.”
